Login to your Global Fishing Watch account to create a report of fishing activity. In the map toolbox, open the Layers tab, then on Static Layers.

  1. Click on any active reference layer in the Global Fishing Watch map. This could be a marine protected area (MPA), exclusive economic zone (EEZ) or an uploaded reference layer.
  2. Click the report icon (closest icon to the layer name) to create an analysis for the area.
  3. The analysis pane will show you a time series graph of activity data over your selected time range. Data presented should be taken as an estimate. Download a data report for more precise analysis, including the list of vessels involved.
  4. In the Global Fishing Watch Marine Manager portal, time series graphs for any environmental layers that are toggled on will also be included.
  5. Scroll to the end of the page and click ‘Download report’. Reports of automatic identification system (AIS) data can be downloaded for time ranges up to one year.
  6. The report will be emailed to you as an attached file in a few minutes. A link to download the data report will be emailed to you. This link has an expiry date, so ensure you download the report promptly.
